Marijuana bugs and pest control
One of the greatest advantages to growing marijuana plants outdoors is that your pest situation will be easier to deal with than it would be indoors. Indoors, your marijuana plants are the sole sustenance for insects and any infestation can spread incredibly rapidly. Outdoors, there will be insects in the soil, as well as those that thrive on green leaves in general, yet they should be kept in check by the ecosystem’s natural way of maintaining balance.
Marijuana grows quickly and, though pests will damage plants, they will usually be repaired as the marijuana plant heals itself throughout its vegetative period. As far as pests are concerned, your marijuana plants will be at their most vulnerable in their infancy. This is when you might want to consider, should the occasion warrant, taking preventative measures.
During the first two months, as you are watering and paying attention to the myriad other problems that might be hindering growth, make sure that pests are kept under control. The insects that you’ll want to pay the most attention to are slugs, snails, caterpillars, leaf-eating insects, and beetles. There are a few different means by which you can control these pests, using natural and artificial pesticides and repellents. Obviously, since you are going to be smoking the flowers of these plants later, you want to pay special attention to the chemicals with which you treat them.
